Games, Giggles and Art From the Heart

Posted on September 14, 2015 with 0 comments

On Saturday September 19th I am leading a workshop called Games, Giggles and Art From the Heart at the TherAvist Conference Center on Lady's Island from 10:00am - 12:00pm.

Laughter releases endorphins into the brain which, in turn, elevate your mood. An elevated mood promotes the creativity we need to navigate our increasingly complex, contemporary lives. Good, right? So....

What if...for a couple of hours you gathered with a bunch of friends for some flat-out, grown up fun to explore, express and maybe even to your hidden creative self?

You might lose yourself in the laughter of games and find yourself in the magic of the moment, You might awaken in your senses through through beauty you create and hear from your heat through your hands. You might gain new insights and perspectives on yourself and your relationship to others.

Through games, giggles and the participation in a variety of art forms, this playshop is designed to reintroduce you to the joy and wonder of just being you. Join us, You'll leave smiling!

Register on line at or by calling (843) 812-1328

Playshop fee: $30.00 (includes all playshop materials)
